I recently got the Epson Perfection 3490 PHOTO scanner.  It's connected
through USB to my computer running Fedora Core 3, my SANE versions are

# rpm -q -a | grep -i sane

sane-find-scanner finds the scanner at libusb:001:003, but scanimage -L
just returns without finding anything ("No scanners were

I added

usb 0x04b8 0x0122

to /etc/sane.d/epson.conf, which made scanimage -L take longer (> 10
seconds) to return the same answer ("No scanners were identified").

Does anyone else have any experience with this scanner, and/or can tell
me whether it is (or will be in the near future) supported by SANE?  Any
pointers on how I can make it work with SANE is much appreciated.

Thank you,
